The one task that you should perform dilligently is backing up your site and database at regular intervals.

Using cPanel's partial or full backup functionality is the easiest way to backup and restore your site. The video explains where to find the backup function and also how to create backups.

 

 

Partial backups

To backup your Joomla site and your database, you only need to do partial backups in cPanel. Download a "Home Directory Backup" and the database associated with your site under "Download a MySQL Database Backup".

You home directory will be zipped and you should keep the zip file and the database together. Needless to say, always keep a copy of your backups on a separate storage device.

Restoring a backup

Restoring files and database is as easy as selecting the zip file and the database you like to restore through the interface provided.

As a second alternative, the Backup Wizard creates a simple and step by step method for you to create and restore backups of their website.

What Clients Say About Us

It took some convincing by Matthias a few years back to move from my Yellow pages add to a web site instead. In hindsight – I should have done this move years earlier because it turned out the best investment and decision I have ever done in my 20 years of being in business now!

Matthias took adequate time and care to create my web site tailored to my needs and niche market requirements at a competitive fee. His personal involvement reflected in a web design result that has catapulted my operation into the cyberspace and Google search engine world with unexpected feedbacks into my business.

Today 90% of my business inquiries are generated from my web site and I am sure the other 10% generated by word of mouth have their origin from previous web site enquiries. Yellow pages – who needs them?

Matthias has maintained his hands-on service during all this time and is helpful in updating the web site or assisting with “hacking attempts” we experienced in the past. We have chosen MC4-IT for our Joomla Web hosting and are very happy with the services and updates provided.

Our Website attracts a great number of hits every day and a lot of other businesses or customers commenting on its professional and user friendly design – just have a look for yourself at and enjoy!
